Bit more fiddly stuff.

Can be tedious this masking lark.

Still, I suppose it's worth it.

                           Here's the start of an interesting little project. A breakwater around "A" turret.
                   It's all in etched brass. The black lines are actually slots laser-cut into the wood, right through.
               I've got the vertical member in place as you can see.  There are now 33 gussets to fit, I need a plan.
                             If you look closely at the RH side of the last shot, you should be able to see the vertical etched lines etched into the inner face of the vertical bit to assist in placement, they all match. Clever stuff by Artwox.

More bits and pieces added, some of which you may never see.
Thank goodness for Tamiya masking tape, super stuff.

Are you just a saint in this life, or have you been the same in all your other incarnations - hohohh 
Still its excellent work and something I try to emulate but only get to 38% - but I still have FUN doing it.

More bits and bobs added.
The bent brass rod in the first shot is for the signal halyards to be made fast to. Port holes etc picked out with suitable coloured washes.
Last shot shows brass rod painted and some railings added.

Hi Haddock,
Just love the way you make it sound so matter of fact,
Great work, as always.

Thankyou kind sir.

What you may have noticed is that some of the parts look a different colour, they aren't.
It was a bit disconcerting at first but after the paint has cured, together with a coat of Klear, the paint darkens  quite noticeably. I've got used to it now.

More railings and ladders added, plus some very nice ladders with handrails.

Why do yours look like railings and ladders and mine just look like a bit of badly bent brass stuck on at strange angles ????????

Must be one of life's mysteries, like the Bermuda Triangle or why does your toast always fall marmalade side down!

Hi Haddock,
Coming together nicely, now starting to look like a warship.
Keep up the great work.
